Will Nevada’s New Recreational Marijuana Industry Become a Disruptive Threat to the State’s Casino Industry?

Could Nevada’s Recreational Marijuana Industry Kill the State’s “Golden Goose” and Its Reliance on Taxes from Casinos and Hotels?

DENVER, CO, USA, July 3, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Author: Jeffrey Friedland

Recreational marijuana, or what is increasingly referred to as “adult-use” marijuana officially became available on Saturday, July 1, 2017, at medical marijuana dispensaries in Nevada.

My prediction is that Nevada’s state marijuana market will become America’s largest purchaser of the plant until California’s recreational industry opens for business in January of 2018. Nevada’s recreational market will be fueled mainly by tourism. Nevada hosts more than 45 million tourist visits a year. The state’s marijuana regulators are forecasting that approximately 63 percent of sales will be to visitors from out of state.

Edibles, rather than joints, dabs or vape pens will probably be the hottest item. This is because marijuana is prohibited in most public places, including but not limited to hotels, casinos, concerts, and festivals. Edibles also will be illegal to consume in public places, but likely their “form factor” as gummies, chocolates, or candies will enable them to become the choice form of marijuana for most tourists.

The state of Nevada allowed medical marijuana dispensaries to sell their existing medical marijuana inventory as “recreational marijuana” on a one-time only basis. This objective was to provide the state with an initial marijuana supply for recreational use. The main complication in having an adequate supply of marijuana for sale is the result of an interesting court order. The courts denied marijuana distribution licenses to anyone other than those already holding existing liquor distribution licenses. When the initial supply runs out, which could occur in a few weeks, it is probable that there will be a significant disruption to the legal supply of marijuana in Nevada.

I've been following the research being done by Vivien Azer and her research team at the New York-based investment banking firm Cowen and Company. Azer's team specializes in covering the beverages, tobacco and cannabis industries. Recent research provided by Cowen leads me to believe that Nevada’s new industry could be very disruptive not only to the state’s alcohol industry but to the casino and hotel business as well.

In an April 20th report, Cowen indicated, “We believe alcohol could be under pressure for the next decade, based on our data analysis covering 80 years of alcohol and 35 years of cannabis incidence in the U.S.” In addition to this April report, Azer and her colleagues stated in May, “Over the next 14 months we expect to see four more states transition to legal cannabis, accounting for 14.5 percent of overall beer volumes (and 16.2 percent of total alcohol volumes.) Recent survey data confirms that a majority of consumers reduce their alcohol consumption with cannabis, while younger adult consumers are most likely to avoid dual-us altogether.”

A Cowen consumer survey in the United States and Canada concluded that over 60 percent of those individuals using marijuana reported a reduction in alcohol consumption when both were consumed together. The report concluded by stating “ The consistent trend of consumers either moderating their alcohol consumption or avoiding dual-use altogether is clearly problematic.”

The impact of the recreational marijuana industry could pose a devastating blow to Nevada’s cash-cow, its casino and hotel industry.

Tourism is the driver of the state’s economy, employing more Nevadans than any other industry. Tourism-related businesses and tourists are the single largest contributor to state and local tax revenues in the state. Statewide, the tourism industry accounted for more than 460,000 jobs in 2016, or 36 percent of Nevada’s employment base. According to the Nevada Resort Association, the Silver State’s tourism sector was responsible for $13 billion in wage and salary payments in 2016, which when coupled with secondary impacts, totaled more than $19 billion.

In 2016, visitors to the state spent over $40 billion for activities ranging from gambling to hotels to sightseeing. When combined with indirect spending on vendor purchases and employee spending, the total soared to $69 billion.

In addition to regular taxes and fees that all Nevada businesses incur, the Nevada Resort Association has indicated that the tourism and gaming industry also contributed approximately $1.6 billion in industry-specific taxes and fees. These include gaming-related contributions, hotel lodging taxes, and live entertainment taxes. The industry’s contributions to public revenues impact both the state as well as local jurisdictions. Nevada’s tourism industry accounts for roughly $1.4 billion, or 42 percent, of the state’s overall tax revenues of $3.4 billion.

Last year was a great year for Nevada’s casino industry. Revenues increased to over $25.2 billion, up from $24.6 billion in 2015. The industry generated an income of an impressive $979 million, a tremendous turn-around from losses of $661 million in 2015. 2016 was the first year of profitability for the state’s casino industry since 2008. During the 2015 fiscal year, over 273 casinos in the Nevada grossed over $1 million in gaming revenue.

There is little doubt that the use of alcohol fuels gambling. Many casinos provide free drinks to encourage hitting the slots and tables. The 64 thousand dollar question is, will consumers high on marijuana spend more time at gaming tables and slots, or will marijuana consumption decrease their gambling?

This implication of the legalization of recreational marijuana in Nevada could well kill the state’s “golden goose.” On the other hand, perhaps those individuals who are well lubricated and relaxed by the use of this newly state-legal substance will open their wallets wider, further bolster the overall economy, increase state employment numbers and up Nevada’s tax revenues.

It is anyone’s guess and time will tell. Bets anyone???

THE ROAD HOME Leads the Way on Peter Calandra’s Soulful Journey

New album The Road Home

Album cover of Peter Calandra’s new album The Road Home

Peter Calandra, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist.

Peter Calandra released his new orchestra and piano-driven album – THE ROAD HOME – via a live 3-hour Release Party on Instrumental Saturdays with Mary Bartlein.

Calandra knows that emotive music is not always about the complexity of a sound, but more so about how to convey an emotion by means of simplicity.”

— Samantha Garcia, BEING

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 3, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Few of us fully appreciate “home” until we leave it, returning with a new perspective, which befits the story behind The Road Home, the new album from New York-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Calandra. The artist returned from a cross-country road trip inspired to create his fourth Ambient New Age album of original music, released 7/1/17 amidst a week-long flurry of music video releases and online interviews, culminating with a live 3-hour release party on WMSE’s popular radio show Instrumental Saturdays. The album is available worldwide on all major sales and streaming sites, and the artist's website: www.petecalandramusic.com

His most personal and revealing project to date, The Road Home passionately delivers more of the sound Calandra’s fans have been enjoying for years, with a loving dose of fresh and mystical vibes. The album is sequenced to share the story of a recent road trip from Big Sur to his home in New York City, capturing scenery, nature and emotions along the way. It is an orchestra and piano-driven cinematic album that strikes a balance between ambient, richly-contemplative expressions, and infectious, gently-swaying melodic pop-jazz gems. Of the ten pieces, several capture the heart like soulful, expansive film scores, while others employ gently rolling percussion and the occasional light vocalization by Joy Askew, famous for her background vocals with Joe Jackson and Peter Gabriel.

Whether he’s composing music for film and TV, penning rousing sports anthems or recording original Contemporary Instrumental music, Peter Calandra shares the source of his prolific music output, saying, “I’ve always heard music in my head – there is new music coming through all the time. The key is learning how to stay open to it. I enjoy telling a story, the challenge is how to do that in the most effective, direct and uncomplicated way possible for the listener’s understanding of the story…in this case, our journey home.”

BEING music reviewer Samantha Garcia concurs, “The Road Home plays out like a journey of the mind’s inner monologue….and Calandra knows that emotive music is not always about the complexity of a sound, but more so about how to convey an emotion by means of simplicity. In the case of The Road Home, less is more.”

The compelling cover art of dark clouds and a long stretch of highway may make The Road Home seem like it’s going to be a purely external journey, but it’s clearly an expression of the artist’s innermost emotions as well. Those who listen will be glad they’re tuned in to the same frequency.

City of West Palm Beach Hosts Residents for Downtown Traffic Mobility Study

Downtown Traffic Mobility Study

west-palm-beach-traffic-study

West Palm Beach taking steps to improve traffic mobility, evaluating new technology to improve traffic concerns for residents using Okeechobee Boulevard.

Putting people first should always be the focus when it comes to developing solutions for the Okeechobee Corridor.”

— Gabe Klein, Co-founder-CityFi

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, U.S.A., July 2, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The future of the Okeechobee corridor was mapped, and a vision created and presented during the four-day Okeechobee Corridor Public Meeting and Charrette on June 12-15, 2017 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, 650 Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach, FL. Hundreds of people, including community members who were deputized as planners, West Palm Beach leadership, and planning professionals, attended the interactive event.

Part of an ongoing initiative to enhance the way people move in the city, the meeting had, as a key component, public feedback to guide the discussion in creating a modern, well-balanced transportation system that provides real mobility choices, from walking to biking, riding and driving, and improves the safety and reliability of using the Okeechobee Corridor.

The kickoff event, “Mapping the Future,” on June 12, 2017 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. was headlined by Gabe Klein, who co-founded the strategic planning and change management firm CityFi, spoke at TedxMidAtlantic 2016, is a former Department of Transportation commissioner, and published author. Representatives from Alta Planning and Design presented initial findings of the mobility study they are conducting, sharing pre-analysis challenges and best practices in planning and engineering to attendees, who went on to participate in a hands-on workshop.

Klein told the audience, "Putting people first should always be the focus when it comes to developing solutions for the Okeechobee Corridor.”

Two "Okeechobee Boulevard Corridor Study Public Pin-Up” get-togethers, part of the “Creating the Vision” process, followed on June 13-14, 2017 between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m., where the public stopped by and listened to what the design team developed, presenting another collaborative opportunity to discuss the work-in-progress and shape design recommendations for the corridor study.

Part four “Presenting the Vision,” was held of June 15, 2017 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., presented draft ideas from the design team of the previously mentioned Alta Planning and Design and CityFi, along with Sam Schwartz Transportation Consultants, whose business includes transit opportunities and corridor design; VHB®, who provide traffic engineering and corridor design services; and PTC Transportation Consultants, traffic engineers, who unveiled concepts and ideas developed with public input.

The City of West Palm Beach has been studying mobility and transportation in the city since March 2017, working with some of the greatest experts in the field. Collaborators include the Metropolitan Planning Organization, Florida Department of Transportation, Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council, Palm Beach County, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Town of Palm Beach, Tri-Rail, Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach Atlantic University, the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches, and assorted neighborhood and community groups.

“West Palm Beach is committed to being a leader in shifting away from our dependence on cars, and moving towards embracing innovative methods of moving people,” said Mayor Jeri Muoio. “The goal is to develop a transportation system that balances bicycle, pedestrian, transit and car travel in an affordable, sustainable, and safe manner.”

Research in growth patterns in the downtown area showed how the City is already leading the way in absorbing new growth and reducing traffic. Data shows that compared to the rest of the City, downtown West Palm Beach has 20% less cars on the road and 9% more people getting around by walking.

Since 2005, while the number of residential units and commercial space has increased in the downtown, the number of cars using Dixie Highway and Olive Avenue have actually decreased. Tri-Rail (+140%), Palm Tran for downtown routes (+30%) and Trolley Ridership (+65%) are all up as residents are finding others ways to move throughout the downtown. *

The events met the goal of forging consensus and developing short- and long-term solutions for the area, which include intersection improvements, including high emphasis crosswalks; bus routing optimization; a walking and biking network with shared use paths, separate bike lanes and pedestrian crossings; streetscape standards and lighting standards to improve the experience and character of the Corridor; improved way finding; and reduced cycle lengths, side street delays and queues in the near-term. Long-term aspirations determined the need for dedicated bus and transit lanes, a tunnel with a pedestrian plaza and transit hub.

“The city received a lot of great ideas, that we’ll be busy developing into projects for presentation to the City Commission and stakeholder groups,” said Assistant City Administrator Scott Kelly.

The investment in existing and emerging West Palm Beach communities outlined will move people, not just cars, enhancing transportation system performance and all modes, connecting community centers and creating quality places.

The Mobility Plan to identify specific projects to enhance mobility in downtown West Palm Beach and support the development of a downtown mobility fee would allow greater flexibility to fund a range of mobility projects that cannot be funded by traditional transportation impact fees. The Okeechobee Boulevard Corridor Study will identify short- and long-term opportunities to enhance the Okeechobee Boulevard corridor from I-95 to the Lake Worth Lagoon. They are being worked on concurrently with the Downtown Parking Management and Transportation Demand Management Study, to analyze how city-owned parking lots, decks, and on-street parking space can be used to meet the city’s mobility and economic development goals, as well as the City-Wide Bicycle Master Plan, and Public Life Study.

The City of West Palm Beach is scheduled to announce a series of meetings with neighborhood and community groups to speak one-on-one with residents concerning their transportation needs.

Visit wpbmobility.com to see a timeline for the plan, learn about events, see plan development documents and subscribe to an email list to be notified of upcoming workshops and updates. Email mobility@wpb.org, to share thoughts on the Okeechobee Corridor and connect with City Planners and the mobility team via email. You may also send a tweet to Mayor Muoio using the hashtag #MobilityMayor.

*2005-2013 traffic studies for Dixie Highway and Olive Avenue show a decrease in the number of cars on the roadways.
